FIRST APPEARANCE: Booster Gold, Green Lantern Guy Gardner, Omac, and Skeets are in the Himalayas, investigating the unexplained appearance of two hundred busts around the world. The busts appear to be of the ancient Egyptian Nefertiti, modeled after a bust in the Neues Museum in Berlin, German. This is the first appearance of Skeets in the post-Flashpoint DC Universe, as well as the first time that Booster has been seen in his pre-Flashpoint costume since that event. This is the only appearance of Booster Gold or his fellow members of the Justice League International in this issue.
Boosterrific Review: This issue teases a larger story, and that tease is the issue's strongest appeal. If you like comic-book logic and universe-threatening conspiracy theories, Stormwatch is the comic for you.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
